Pretty edibles

Romanesco (still remembering the romanesco I had recently)

"Bright Lights" Swiss chard

Even the truffle pasta at Crudus, which so inspired Jason Wu...

He put it on the runway! This cream chiffon "truffle" skirt is from Wu's Spring '11 collection. :)

P.S. Took my computer to the computer doctor for a MAJOR checkup - at loong last, I can follow people with Google Friend Connect! (And I think my own GFC finally works.) Yippee! :)

My GFC was being weird for awhile too...It seems better now, but that was frustrating! I've never even seen that first food..it looks like something from the ocean :)

Oh that's great! I'm now following officially, of course :-) Hmm the romanesco IS pretty but I don't think I liked the taste of it (I've only had it once or twice)... maybe I'll just serve it when I have guests over - it will look nice and I won't have to eat it haha!

Jude, it is great thanks!
I also follow you now!

Brandi said...

I encountered romanesco in my local Whole Foods for the first time this past weekend. I'm not sure what to do with it though. How is it cooked? It's just so pretty, it almost doesn't look like it could be edible.

Ashley said...

The colors of that romanesco are so rich. It's too prettyto eat. Glad your computer is ok.

Lady Grey said...

Beautiful! I love the romanesco.... it's gorgeous actually!

I have never seen or even heard of Romanesco before - fascinating. It's quite beautiful. What does it taste like?

Melissa Blake said...

Nicole said...

I can't believe that dress is made out of truffles!! Have you ever heard of edible arrangements? They sculpt fruit to look like flowers and pretty stuff!

I almost forgot it's truffle season! Must get one.

Julie-Inspired said...

When I was recently in Budapest, we were walking through an outside market and I spotted these incredible looking (almost dinosaur like) vegetables and I had no idea what they were. I took a photo because of their beauty. I now know what they were...Romanesco! Are they good? I'm guessing tastes like broccoli?
p.s. Love your blog:)

lisa said...

What a great post Jude, The romanesco is fantastic, and I've never seen swiss chard that color. Ours is always kind of boring greenish red. Especially love the info on Jason Wu. That skirt need to be in my closet. Love it.

lisa.
P.S. Bear Mtn. is right near Harriman! It's wonderful there too. As an extra? Fantastic little outlet stores nearby!

Angie Willis said...

Aren't those Romanescos fun! I took my laptop out into the garden to compare your swiss chard with mine. Yours look much better!

this free bird said...

I'm so glad your computer's fixed! Can it see my pictures now?? About 5 people have mentioned they can't see them. Argh!

And now...how about that swiss chard?? gorgeous!

There are some blogs like yours that I visit so often I imagine I'm already following them!!But I am definitely following yours now!

Julie said...

Lovin the Chard.

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

Love the photos and I am so glad that your comp is fixed!
Thanks for following Jude!

Kristin said...

I can't believe how vibrant the colors of that swiss chard are!

Jude said...

Thanks so much for your lovely comments, my goodness but I'm relieved about my computer fix!
@Brandi, Jeanette, Julie-Inspired, and Connie - romanesco really does taste like broccoli (and cooked like it)! With a bit of brussel sprout flavor, so it's kinda peppery but I loved it :)
@Nicole - love Edible Arrangements! The skirt is made of real chiffon, so probably nowhere as tasty as a truffle :)
@Lisa - I think I've been to some of those outlets near Bear Mtn! Woodbury? Shopping heaven :)
@Carrie - I can finally see your pictures if I click on them! Though I think it's also Blogger being mean since a few of us have the same problem!
@Kristin - I'll leave more info on your blog re:London! :)

annette said...

The romanesco always looks so beautiful at my local co-op but I never know quite how to cook it. But I see you said it's like broccoli so maybe I'll give it a go. So glad you can follow your favorite blogs now! ;)

elra said...

Wow, love the color, love the collections you pick here. Simply gorgeous !

Stacey said...

I'm happy to see your avatar on my blog dear Jude:-). Glad the computer is fixed. I love the romanesco and could dance the night away in one of Jason Wu's truffle inspired skirts! XX

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Hi sweetie! Thx so much for the info on where to stay when visiting the CIA. I totally will check it out. You're the best :)

Oh and I just bought romanseco TODAY at the green market. Going to cook it soon. Thx for inspiring me :) xoxo

Jude said...

@Stacey - I'm soo embarassed it took me ages to get the GFC and other probs fixed! I'm just thrilled I can follow you properly now! :)
@Dawn - aw, that's that's so awesome you could get ahold of romanesco! I hope you're able to find someplace decent in the area if you visit! :)

rainbow chard is one of my favorites. Toss in some garlic, onion toasted pine nuts and some fetta on top. mmm...

Oh, My Darling said...
